Ian O’Neill at Astroengine posted this stunning bit of video featuring Arizona State Senator Sylvia Allen.

It’s not that she says the Earth is 6000 years old — twice, just to make sure — that floors me. It’s the casual way she said it, as if she said "I had a cup of coffee today." From her manner, it’s clear that not only does she believe this complete and utter nonsense, but this is a simple fact woven into her mind just like the Sun is bright or chocolate is tasty.

To her, the Earth being 6000 years old just is.

Now, to be fair, this video is without context, and so w

Meanwhile Flagstaff has a volcanoe that erupted over 10,oo years ago. It is Sunset Crater national park.

How does she explain that?

im sures its only to test her faith.


Shes right that digging mines does not distroy life on a planet, but bald monkeys with bombs do. Im sure many will be praying for her as she is ridiculed for being a christian...

I think this is the view of some Christians. I was talking with a pretty hardcore Christian years back and he told me that the earth was only a few thousand years old.

Here is a wiki article:

Naw, she's not being ridiculed for being a Christian. She's ridiculed for being stupid. I know Christians that don't believe the 6000 year, nor the 'intelligent design' nonsense.

Very rarely when discussing economic mining policies do I feel the need to state the age of the Earth itself. I don't think she really believes it herself, she's just convinced herself that she does.

ditto.

probably why the elite plan to kill most of us? lol


but honestly, Sometimes i think only english speaking people have the capacity to be this completely stupid. probably because iv never heard stupidity in another language.

She is pretty religious about her religion isnt she? anyone who is so blindly devoted to a single, false ideal is dangerous.

Definition of irony:


The half-life of uranium-238 is about 4.47 billion years and that of uranium-235 is 704 million years,[3] making them useful in dating the age of the Earth wiki


The very thing she's talking of mining is used to date the earth.

Welcome to the wonderful state of Arizona, where some of our leaders believe this as well as believe that science is trying to take away God...where we cannot get a budget deal done in time, but we can pass a law against tripping horses in the same session( but cow tipping is still allowed)...where we have more sun than anywhere else in the USA but lag far behind other states ( including sunny Oregon) in solar capability...go figure

Who really elects someone who believes the earth is 6,000 years old.

Well I guess we'd rather have a ignorant buffoon in there, then an intelligent atheist.?

They are all waiting for the rapture. Why plan for the future when their isnt one in the mind of these religious nuts.

Sigh..... nothing can be done now.... our entire society is infested with ignorant zelots. I can only hope that the NWO will educate or remove them.

Isn't it heartening to know that someone with such a grasp of scientific issues has a powerful say in (I think, from the context) the siting of a nuclear waste dump.

Can anybody name ONE other country in the world where the elected representatives would say something that dumb? In the UK we have some staggeringly dense politicians... but do their worst, they couldn't equal that video.

(Mind you, if someone can post something to prove me wrong, I could do with a laugh.)

Tell that to the Hopi and Navajo. They need water too, but the mines are taking that right to life (water) away from them.

What a #ing crackpot that lady is. I actually find people like that offensive to be honest - that type of nonsense is DAMAGING to our children and next generations. Religious apologists will say I'm overreacting, "because her saying that doesn't make a big difference". Yes it does people. There is no reason to believe such crap. It's completely unintelligible bull crap. I'm somewhat happy I live in Canada where these folk aren't so abundant. I feel for you US, you are being stifled because of morons like this lady. It's actually funny that she is talking about uranium mining because uranium is an element that came to be on the earth MUCH MUCH earlier than #ing 6000 years. Try from the beginning of the earth (ie: 4.5 Billion years) lady. I hate people like her...
(uranium has been transferred from the mantle to the continental and oceanic crusts for aleast 2 billion years).
